85 YEARS AGO TODAY The first man to script Thor was born

Thor was just another story. I didn't think about it at all. Stan said, "I'm trying to make up a character," and he gave me the plot, and he said, "Why don't you write the story?"

If you like these Thor photomontages that appeared 30 days apart in early 1969 thank the zeitgeist.


The album cover art to the BEATLES SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND won a Grammy Award in 1968. In the 'Sixties more people saw album cover art than any other art. It is possible that the iconic photomontage inspired Jack Kirby to create these pages.
